My husband and I were so excited when we learned about the Stash Café. We love Polish food (grew up with it), and Stash does an excellent job with the classics. We had the herring, kielbasa, chicken livers. I would recommend all of them

Homemade Polish food that was out of this world. Fresh ingredients and cooked perfectly. The pirogies were light and pillowy and nothing like store bought. The ambiance was so relaxed and the building just exuded old war charm. Everybody was smiling in the entire restaurant. A trip to the restroom is hilarious. Don't drink too much before you attempt those... More

The food at Stash was just great. The Table D'Hote selections offer a very good value for the dollar. Nice selection of adult beverages, too. Live music (piano player) made for a nice atmosphere. We dined pretty early, so there was no crowd, but it is not a big place. My wife and I would definitely go back. Highly recommended.

My husband and I visited Stash Cafe on our trip to Montreal based on previous trip advisor reviews. What an excellent choice! The ambience is charming. The food is superbly prepared. My husband had the stuffed cabbage and I had the chicken breast. Both were served with a delicious cabbage slaw. The portion of chicken was huge, enough to share... More

Have travelled from Niagara to Montreal in the last month, eating in over 50 restaurants along the way and this was the best. Excellent food. Excellent service and a wonderful piano player, giving a lovely ambiance to the place.

Great polish restaurant in old Montreal. We were not very familiar with polish cuisine and we tried a lot of different dishes. Amazing food experience

A polish family runs this and mom is the cook. It was warm so the windows were open to the activity on Rue St Paul. it is small and intimate - you may hear more of your fellow diners' conversation than you want. Service fast and polite. Food was phenomenal - I had their sauerkraut/meat/sausage dish and it was wonderful.... More

Our steward told us about this cafe in Old City. We had brunch there. I loved the Bloody Mary! The breakfast was delicious, the atmosphere was old Euro style, very clean, and quiet.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighborhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic center of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its center, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theater.
